Holt, Michigan, ...
this is my completed wedding dress and the groom’s shirt. it was an outdoor wedding, and it rain till about 3pm that day, drying up just in time for the ceremony (which was 2 hrs late because of the rain!).
both my dress and the groom’s shirt are made of red silk. my dress has red and black (silk?) lace, machine and hand embroidery on the middle stomach part of the bodice, and beading around the neckline. I also made a detachable train out of different chiffons, organzas and laces, rolled the hems using the serger, attached a narrow waistband, and use hooks and eyes to put it on the dress. his shirt features machine embroidery on the back yoke (not pictured ): ). sorry there aren’t more/better pictures, the file size is too big to attach more than one!
